|Skipper is doing so well! She has taken to her new home so well, it's almost as if she has always been a house dog. She definitely knows a good thing when she sees one and I'd say she's found the best one. |
A few months before I adopted her, my dog of over 16 years (she was 21 at the time--yes, really 21!) died and I knew it was time for a new addition to the family. I researched a lot of breeds and thought I had settle on a tiny Italian Greyhound, until I happened to run into a lovely greyhound one day. Needless to say, I was hooked. A few months later, Skipper came into my life and I knew it was love.
Please consider letting one of these gentle giants into your life as well. She's not the fluffiest dog out there (been there, done that--ugh, all that shedding!), but she definitely knows how to cuddle!

|Dear Greyhound Welfare,|
The weekend of Memorial Day this year my husband and I made the 4 hour round trip to VA to adopt our first, and definately not our last Greyhound, Nelly (formerly known as Saffron). It has been a whirlwind of a month and I just now have found some time to write to you guys to thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to know such a wonderful life with a grey. Nelly is so amazing and has had our hearts from the beginning. Each new day with the Nellster has been both challenging but so joyous. Being a married couple without kids we definately were used to doing things our way. So, life has definately changed. But, we would never go back for anything. Our two year old grey has such a personality!!! She now smiles when we come home and she makes us laugh so much with her zoomies and the way she takes her stuffies out of her toy bin one by one and scatters them throughout the house. She is so onrey too!!! She loves to play and pounces on her favorite squeaky duck like a champ.
Nelly is a joy and a comfort. She is so smart and just fun to be around. She is our baby and I thank God every day that he created such a special creature and made it possible for us to share our lives with Nelly!!!!
p.s. can't wait to see everyone at the picnic in September!!!!
Take Care and God Bless!!
Leah, Chris and Nelly Bennett

|My mixed breed dog was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in August of '06, and he was euthanized in April of 2007, and I spent the most miserable few days of my life without him. I went to visit the dog known at the time as "Lime," not really thinking I would adopt the first hound I looked at. When I walked into his foster home, and he came across the floor grinning at me, it was love at first sight.|
George is 4.5 years old, and had a long racing career. He LOVES to sleep, eat, ride in the car and take walks. He learned "sit" and "down" in two days. I feel certain that he will continue to absorb things like a sponge, and before I know it he'll be making his own meals while I'm at work!
George has joined "Greyhound Adventures" for a walk (he wanted to be first!) and has visited his Granny and PopPop on Nantucket. The ferry ride was loads of fun, but his favorite thing was going to town and looking in all the shop windows!
George greets me with grins, hugs, and a helicopter tail when I come home from work. It sure makes you feel special to get a reaction like that after less than a month!
Thank you Greyhound Welfare for filling the hole left in my life by the passing of Kramer!

|Mr. Pibb who is now Reggie has become my best friend in Boston. I'm so thankful to have found him, and to be able to give him a happy home for the rest of his retired life. It's been so rewarding watching him transform from a shy, quiet dog to the social, playful guy that he is today. He just LOVES to play w/ his squeaky stuffies; throwing them into the air and then running over to wherever they land. He also enjoys our long walks along the Charles river where he can stare at all of the squirrels and geese along the way! He's become so loving and well-behaved that I couldn't have ever asked for a better companion. Thank you Greyhound Welfare for introducing me to Reggie!|
